By  | 

Shock hit many followers of the Nigerian film industry on Thursday when celebrated actress, Moji Olaiya, passed away.

Olaiya, who was a daughter of highlife veteran, Sir Victor Olaiya, was said to have died in an hospital in Canada.

She was 42.

Unconfirmed reports said she died of cardiac arrest.

Apart from continuing to make waves on the screen, Olaiya was in the news in March when she gave birth to her second baby from another marriage, having remained a divorcee for years.

Many of her former colleagues and fans expressed shock and agonised over her death.

While actress and producer, Funke Akindele, described the passage as a sad departure of a great talent, another actor, Femi Branch, said Olaiya was kind-hearted.

On his part, popular comedian, Bolaji Amusan, noted that although Olaiya was a daughter of a great musician, she radiated modesty all through.
